INDIE NIGHT is back! The Film Festival Reopens in Hollywood, California this June 2021 at the TCL Chinese Mann Theatre
INDIE NIGHT FILM FESTIVAL, the only weekly film festival in the world based in Hollywood, CA, is excited to announce the reopening of the Festival in June 2021. Founded by Dave Brown, a Morehouse graduate and veteran in the film industry, the festival has taken place at the Mann’s Chinese Theater weekly in the heart of Hollywood, California for the last nine years but due to the global pandemic, the festival was the first to go virtual using their online platform at Indienightff.com. Dave Brown says, “The pandemic made us stronger and we are grateful for the support received as we held the festival and screenings virtually ON DEMAND. We are excited the TCL Theater reopened and like all other establishments we will follow the limited seating capacity and all COVID-19 prevented measures for those not vaccinated. It’s time to be in the theaters again and support one one another in person as we have for the past 9 years.”
The festival showcases short films, feature films, web-series, documentaries, plus monologues and returns strong as it was recently announced by Blavity Inc. on May 6th as a Blavity Growth Fellow. The Growth Fellowship was created to address how Black entrepreneurs are disproportionately underrepresented in the field and to expand Black economic advancement. Blavity is a Black-owned company that runs five content brands like Shadow and Act and namesake news site Blavity that formed in 2014. Indie Night is thrilled and excited to be a part of the Growth Fellowship.
The festival is currently looking for sponsors and strategic partners to travel the Festival to major cities in the next 3 years. Kizzie Duah, the Executive Director of Indie Night says, “We are growing rapidly and have the desire to make the necessary connections and partnerships to reach the film and tv community on the road. If you have a special event and would like Indie Night to kick off your event, drop us an email”. The festival will continue to screen films virtually for filmmakers unable to travel and for those overseas hitting countries like Africa, South America, China, and Europe. Filmmakers everywhere are encouraged to submit films for a chance to have their work seen.
